Synopsis

“3 ½ Stars (out of 4)… Kinski is something.” – Roger Ebert

A remake of the 1942 Jacques Tourneur horror/noir classic, Cat People stars Nastassia Kinski as Irena, a beautiful young woman who discovers love for the first time only to find that the experience brings tragic consequences. The tremendous passion of this girl’s first romantic love is so strong, however, it bypasses the chaos around her – including the extraordinary demands of her brother (Malcolm McDowell, A Clockwork Orange) – as it pushes her on to her own bizarre destiny. Directed by Paul Schrader (Hardcore, American Gigolo, Affliction), this erotic fantasy about the passion and terror surrounding this first love also stars John Heard (C.H.U.D.), Annette O’Toole (48 Hrs.), Ruby Dee (Do The Right Thing) and Lynn Lowry (They Came From Within).

Why We Love It

"This new Shout! Factory Blu-ray release of Paul Schrader's Cat People features some quality extras that do a great job of detailing the history of the movie and of those involved in this unique production." – Ian Jane, DVD Talk

"This transfer honors the boldness of Cat People’s color scheme with a specificity that’s never been previously matched by any domestic home-video presentation. The reds of the desert, the blacks of the cats, and the greens and blues of the actors’ eyes all register with a newfound vivacity that intensifies the sensual and hallucinatory effect of the film." – Chuck Bowen, Slant Magazine

"The best thing about this high definition presentation is the color, which is accurate looking and very nicely saturated throughout the entire film." – Jeffrey Kauffman, Blu-Ray
